CareFusion New York Jazz Festival
Covers the City June 17 – 26, 2010

George Wein’s New Festival Productions
Produces 10-day Festival Including Partnerships
with Some of New York’s Most Unique and Culturally Significant Venues

NEW
YORK, NY, November 19, 2009 – After being without the annual jazz
festival this past June for the first time in 37 years, jazz fans from
around the world can celebrate the music at the CareFusion New York
Jazz Festival June 17 – 26, 2010. George Wein, along with his New
Festival Productions, LLC, again will produce a 10-day festival that
will cover the city with concerts.

CareFusion Corporation is a
global provider of products and services that measurably improve the
productivity and safety of healthcare.

“When CareFusion came on
board to sponsor the 2009 jazz festival in Newport, I called it a
miracle. When they agreed to sponsor the 2010 festival in New York, it
was a sign that the tradition we established in 1972 could continue, ”
said Mr. Wein.

“However, producing a major jazz festival in New
York is always a challenge, ” he added. “With outstanding music
presented nightly in the clubs and concert halls, this city is a
festival all year round. So, to give jazz fans the great festival they
deserve, we’re keeping in mind lyrics by my friend Johnny Mercer,
‘Accentuate the Positive.’”

For the 2010 CareFusion New York
Jazz Festival, Wein will “accentuate the positive” by producing
concerts in partnership with some of the city’s most unique and
culturally significant venues. The venues will include: Carnegie Hall,
City Parks Foundation’s Central Park SummerStage, Crotona Park in the
Bronx, City Winery, Harlem Stage Gatehouse, The Jazz Gallery, Jazz
Standard, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Louis Armstrong House Museum, Music Hall
of Williamsburg, Peter Norton Symphony Space, Prospect Park Bandshell:
Celebrate Brooklyn, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture,
Studio Museum in Harlem and The Town Hall.

New Festival
Productions and its partners already have contracted a number of
artists. Most shows at partner venues will be priced between $15 – 20,
making it possible for more music lovers to participate in festival
events.

“The Jazz Gallery, which features exceptional younger
and emerging jazz artists, is both pleased and honored to have been
chosen by George Wein to be part of the 2010 CareFusion New York Jazz
Festival, ” said Hank O’Neal, Chairman, The Jazz Gallery. “This
recognition of The Jazz Gallery’s core mission and the confidence
George has shown in Rio Sakairi to program events here is especially
gratifying. It also underscores the fact that George is always looking
to the future, and in partnership with CareFusion, insures that
important young jazz voices continue to be heard.”

The Jazz
Gallery is located at 290 Hudson Street (between Spring & Dominick
Streets). There will be two sets each evening at 9:00 pm and 10:30 pm.

2009 CareFusion Jazz Festival Series included George Wein’s CareFusion
Jazz Festival 55 in Newport, RI; Chicago Jazz Festival presented by
CareFusion; CareFusion Presents Dizzy’s Den at the Monterey Jazz
Festival; CareFusion Manly Jazz Festival (Australia); and CareFusion
